It's the same as the last one you posted. Try switching to IDE mode of you can.

also many people say doing this fixes the problem
Goto Control Panel\System and Maintenance\System
Click on "Advanced System Settings" on the left panel
Under "Startup and Recovery" select "Settings"
Make sure you have a check mark beside "Write and event to the system log"
but if i tick it and click ok i went back to it and it was unticked it seems it will not let me tick it

I this point I would try opening an elevated command prompt and running SFC /SCANNOW.

If that doesn't fix anything, a repair install might.

Did you at least try SFC /SCANNOW?

Seriously, a lot of what I've read suggest a clean install. I figure a repair install might have to same effect without you having to reinstall all your programs.

if your bios isn't up to date, do that first, and you might not have the same errors after reinstalling windows, but I think Petey7 is right when he says you may have to reinstall windows.
